COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
AMA is a transatlantic brewing project that carries the signature of Amarcord Beer, with its origins in a meeting in New York with Garrett Oliver, the Brooklyn Brewery brewmaster, and the internationally famous designer Milton Glaser, amongst other things the inventor of the "I love NY" logo.

Bright gold in colour, with a compact foamy head. Fruity and floral notes from the use of orange-blossom honey and slow refermentation in the bottle. Great elegance, harmony and balance on the palate. Every sip finishes with the tang of hops, with the invitation to continue the experience.

- Beautiful snow-white foam, creamy, dense, persistent.
- Light yellow opalescent beer.
- Good olfactory intensity and definitely attractive its aromatic finesse. The orange blossom honey is revealed clearly in the nose to medium-high temperatures, but at serving temperature the fresh feeling citrus and sour perfume prevails.
- Medium body and considerable effervescence.
- The palate feels notes of fresh citrus, very present the citric acid. As it warms it loads sweet aroma of honey and barley malt. A fresh finish, rich in citrus notes, a refined dryness in the end. The bitter content matches with the other marked flavours (acid, citrus).
- Aftertaste releases long and winding notes of fresh citrus that combine with sugary notes and malt.
- A refreshing beer , fragrant, well-balanced the sweet-acid notes, ending moderately dry invokes the next sip.

Hazy honey golden color with tiny particles though I didn’t pour the full bottle. Small white head. Sweet, sugary, alcohol, some yeast scent. Sweet, citrus pith, yeast, some phenoles taste. Warming alcohol. Minerals. Spritzy "growing" mouthfeel. Medium bitterness. Bitter aftertaste.
Got the impression of a clean Belgian blonde.

cinek (386) - POLAND - AUG 5, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 7, 2017 Tap/weźże. Słomkowe, z kilkumilimetrową, białą, drobnopecherzykową pianą, która utrzymuje się do końca picia. Aromat to głównie Belgia, trochę cytrusów, kwiaty, wręcz perfumy. W smaku mocno nasycone, słodko-kwaśne, fajne piwo

MoritzF (10068) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - MAY 31, 2017
(bottle, 33cl) Slightly hazy, golden colour with a blond medium-sized foamy head. Discreet aroma of honey-ish cara-malt with flowery and mildly fruity accents, including hints of oranges. Moderately sweet flavour, light to medium bodied with a modest carbonation. Soft, delicately nutty malty base with shades of caramel, accompanied by mildly fruity and floral notes; mildly sweet and fruity finish with citric flavours of oranges. Pairs good with food; not a session beer. 12.VI.17

3.4
Saeglopur (2296) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - MAR 28, 2017
355 ml bottle at a Pizzeria, bb 03/07/17.
Dark golden to amber, hazy body, with a big, fluffy, yellowish head.
Aroma of yeast, spices, bread, dried fruits, some grass, some flowers.
Tastes quite similar, with more bready notes.
Medium, a bit creamy mouthfeel, with a fizzy carbonation.
Finishes spicy, yeasty, bready, a bit sweet, with subtle fruits.

Nice one. A typical, yeast-forward Belgian ale, with good spicy and fruity notes, that drinks fresh and quite easy. Nothing unique and not that complex, but a solid style example.
